The incentives to perform well in school and participate in socially conscious causes such as Pay-It-Forward, Anti-Bullying, and volunteerism will provide discounts and other offers to be redeemed at local and national retail partners for both students and educators. Each good grade described as an 'A' or 'B' and constructive communal activity counts towards prizes, discounts, and other rewards.

"In our society we constantly emphasize the importance of good grades and building good character, therefore I believe that it is our responsibility to develop initiatives that reward and encourage these achievements.  I created Grades4Life because I wanted to build a platform that brings together businesses, teachers, parents, and students all in the name of education.  By working together we can create change," stated Grades 4 Life founder, Chris Johnson. By partnering with retailers, G4L acts as an external rewards program for businesses by introducing new customers and driving traffic to retail outlets where points can be redeemed. Students can also earn points when shopping within the G4L business network.
